Lessons of death

SHAFAQNA – Imam Ali (AS) said: It seem that death is written for others and not us; and the right and the truth is Wajeb for others and not us. It seems these dead people are passengers who will come back soon whilst we bury their bodies in the graves and we eat their inheritance. It seems that we will last for ever after their death. Is it really like this, that we forget the advice of any man and woman and have made ourselves a target for arrows of calamities and misfortunes [1]?
